Evaluation Comments for Hamberlin, L.

  1. Do not take this class with Hamberlin if you have not taken at least one music theory class. It is not in the prerequisites, but a good deal of theory knowledge is required for this class. You can't just learn what you need to know in your free time. Hamberlin is very unclear about expectations for the class, and you may be surprised at how much work this class will actually be. I didn't find this class very interesting, and it is very confusing trying to analyze modern and post-modern music. Much of it is atonal.

  4. I took this course on a whim to fill a time slot and a distribution requirement. I am not a music major and am not particularly good a music theory, but I found this class amazingly fascinating and engaging. Even though the class is indeed fully lecture style, I personally always felt motivated to come to class just for the lecture (of course, I might just be one that is fascinated by music history). To do well in this course, do the short hw assignments in the first month, **take copious notes in class, and **memorize the names of every piece assigned. It is not necessary to read the readings, though they are indeed interesting. Hamberlin is an all around cool, funny guy. He also inspired me to pick up German.
